A Formal Orange Wedding in Nashville, Tennessee
Cyndi and Daniel
Cyndi Thomson was scheduled to spend nine hours shooting an interview for a television program about her fast-rising country-music career. She answered the reporter's questions while Daniel Goodman, the show's production manager, sat quietly nearby. Cyndi noticed his good looks and gentle demeanor. As the crew packed up at day's end, Cyndi asked someone to invite Daniel along to dinner. "I didn't know anything about him, but leaving without him just seemed impossible," she says. On that September night, the two broke away from the group and talked for hours. Both left knowing they had met the person they were going to marry.
